Abstract: © 2020-Center for Economic Integration, Sejong Institution, Sejong University. This article identifies the main determinants of China’s outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) activities with Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) countries, namely, Cambodia, Lao, Myanmar, Vietnam, and Thailand during the period between 2007 and 2016. We established the Bayesian panel data approach combination. The results of this study show that a higher economic growth rate, gross domestic product, and political stability tend to increase the likelihood of receiving Chinese outward foreign direct investment. On the other hand, higher foreign direct investment performance, inflation rates, rule of law, and business freedom tends to decrease the probability of being a recipient of Chinese outward foreign direct investment. Compared with previous studies that only assessed economic variables, the innovation of this study lies in its inclusion of socio-political variables.
